Its getting nicer each day.....maybe we can get another contest started with a spring theme (make the time frame long enough for the northern people to participate).....even if there is no prize it would be fun to do. What do you guys think?

we are planning a 2nd AP contest with a new theme along with a general contest of some kind for all members so they can participate in case they don't have AP equipment.

I have to do some tweaking to the contest software I recoded so we can archive the old contests and open up the new one. also we need to finalize an theme for the AP one.

How about "How we travel" Roads, Railroads, Airports, Water ways, Trails, etc?

Marc,

Not to dampen the spirit of fairness. I would like to suggest we should have separate contest, one for AP and one for ground-based camera. Otherwise it will be harder to judge as ground shots are generally easier to obtain (not saying it is better) than AP. After all, this "IS" the AP forum.

I don't think I had a good photo to win the last contest, I think it had more the "WOW" factor than it is a great picture. Take a look at the photo Slopedog took to win the last RC Groups contest. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=486427

Just my two cents.:rolleyes:

I agree, AP should be a separate contest.

Admin,

Cant we just let one of the AP mods in here handle setting up unofficial contests between the official contests? It would sure would make things more fun here in this forum.

We can keep the same rules, maybe start a poll to decide the first AP subject and go from there.

whadya think?
